Love this little hidden “gem.” A fabulous spot for a girls getaway, romantic escape or some solitude on your own. The outdoor shower is beyond amazing. The rustic setting is heaven on earth. Always enjoy our time at Cedarbrae!

Lovely place. Well cared for, clean and private. Would not hesitate to go back.

This place was magical. The fireplace the centrepiece for many wonderful visits with friends. The patio overlooked the autumn colours. Staircase and upstairs were charming and the outdoor shower a delight. I cant say enough good things about CedarBrae and the history of Benmiller.


I planned this for months and the 3 of us devoured the weekend in a heart beat!, so the only treatment for that is to come again!! Picturesque views, fresh air and an appreciation to stay in a 166 yr old cottage. This unassuming cottage boasts a ton of charm and peace and quiet …The pictures just don’t do the cabin justice. Come an see for yourself, bring some wine, sit by the crackling fire and just relax. It’s warm and cozy. Your problems seem to vanish away when you’re in this piece/peace of Heaven. Neil, is an awesome host!! Thanks for letting us call your cottage ‘our’ cottage for the weekend. We are addicted!! We’ll be back for more!

The cottage is every bit as charming as the photos. Clean and very well kept. It is obvious that the owner takes great pride and care in the cottage and property. It is ideal for a couple or small family, with lots of outdoor space to enjoy.
We absolutely loved our time there and would definitely go back!


Our visit to this cabin was a family vacation for two adults and one 10 year old girl. We all LOVED this cabin. We went in the winter after a snow. It was wonderful just to stay inside and enjoy the wood stove and fireplace. Lots of good wood was provided. The views out the windows were beautiful. Sledding is good on the road out front. Lake Huron beaches and cute tourist town with shopping (Goderich) are minutes away. The river and hiking are right there. The kitchen is well equipped for most anything you want to cook on vacation. TV, stereo and internet work well. The host (Neil) was flexible and attentive, but non-intrusive. One of us lives in the northeast US and likes old houses. This one has a lot of charm. The only bathroom is upstairs and has a slanted ceiling so you have to sit down to shower. We thought maybe we wouldn’t like this arrangement. but it turned out the bath/shower combination is very relaxing. It was one of our very best vacations EVER! We will try to come again.


This cabin exceeded my expectations in every respect. The fireplace is beautiful. The cabin is cozy. Very relaxing.
